Dear Friends of Valhalla,
The Thirtieth Annual 2009 Valhalla Arts, Music, and Theatre Festival is just around the corner. The Tahoe Tallac Association's Board of Directors, staff, and volunteers have been working hard to plan the exciting event. The Festival schedule is taking shape, and you can watch it develop on our web site at valhallatahoe.com/events.html. However, we need the financial support of returning and new members to insure that the next great Festival is the best ever.
The season kicks off in a big way as the Tahoe Tallac Association assists with the annual Valhalla Renaissance Faire at Camp Richardson Woods on the weekends of May 30 & 31 and June 6 & 7 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Come out and see and hear (or, better yet, see and be seen in your favorite Renaissance costume) as Renaissance culture, arts, and entertainment comes to life before your eyes! You'll see jousting, singing, dancing, storytelling, comedy, merchants, and recreations of sword fights and battles.Great cultural events like the annual WaShe Shu It Deh Native American Festival return for 2009, and a Latino Day is also scheduled. The Valhalla Twin Cabins will house the Cultural Arts Store and an Artist-in-Residence program. The professional chorus and orchestra Toccata returns along with classical, jazz, Celtic, Latino, and other ethnic music programs. An update of the ever-popular, south shore musical revue "Guilty Pleasures" leads the list of theatre events. The Valhalla Estate will also host the Tahoe Arts Project's Missoula Children's Theatre during the week of July 27-August 1. These programs and events are wonderful, but they can't happen without the Membership and other contributions of our loyal supporters. If you haven't already updated your membership for 2009, please go to valhallatahoe.com/membership.html and complete the on line membership form. If you have already enrolled, pass on this letter to a friend by using the "Forward email" link below. Your membership contributions are absolutely essential to the Tahoe Tallac Association continuing its Valhalla Arts, Music, and Theatre Festival. We couldn't do it without you! Sincerely, Eric J. Taxer, President
